Go Inside Albert Hammond Jr.’s Soundcheck with Live Nation TV

Written by on December 14, 2015

Albert Hammond Jr.
Before a recent show at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, Albert Hammond Jr. invited Live Nation TV behind the scenes to offer a glimpse of what his typical soundcheck is like.

The Strokes guitarist walked through his stage setup and his preferred music-making tool, a Fender Stratocaster that he first picked up in 1999.

“Hopefully, it’ll never break and I can always use it live,” Hammond joked when pointing out the guitar.

Hammond, who was on the road supporting 2015’s Momentary Masters, also said soundcheck is a good time for him to practice new songs and possibly included them in his set.

“When I started touring, it was like, ‘Yeah, you have no time to write,'” Hammond noted. “But whenever you do, you can use sound check as your time to try out new songs that you haven’t played live.”
